Greetings Dear Friends,
We thank God that we can now congregate in the churches with proper security protocols.
God is good all the time and we can see his powerful hand in every moment. As I mentioned in my last letter, I have been giving sound classes to a group of people so that they can prepare and gain knowledge to be able to help in the church in that area. In this group there is a young woman that I’d like to ask you to please keep her in prayer; She have not seen your youngest child for about 6 months.
We do not know the situation very well, but she is part of the members of the Church that we attend. We know her son, he was part of the youth group when we were youth leaders before moving to the USA. She does not have a job, plus not knowing anything about her son has her depressed. As you know the situation in Mexico with drug trafficking groups is very serious, and many people disappear because of that. Saying that “their son was picked up” is a term that is used here in Mexico to address people who have been deprived of their freedom by the drug trafficking groups, like the lady and her family.
We have not heard any more about her son We ask that you pray that she can find peace and comfort in God in this difficult time.
We continue to work with help in teaching through the media (YouTube, Facebook) and helping pastors in their needs, so that they can feel that they are not alone and that there are people who care about them.
This month we helped a couple of pastors in their home move. They held their church meetings in their home and have decided to donate their house for the exclusive use of the Church and rent a house elsewhere. Pastor Ricardo and his wife Janet ask for prayer for their finances in this transition.
We are preparing to travel to Pensacola in June. Our children need to do their final exams, and as I am not a Mexican citizen, my visa expires on those dates and I must return to the USA every 6 months to be able to renew my Mexican visa. We ask for your prayers. We trust that God will provide for this trip. We will need $ 4000 dollars for this trip to cover our stay, flights, visa and COVID exams that are required to be able to fly and enter the USA.
Thank you for your perseverance in prayer for us. We know that these times have been hard and complicated in the USA. We appreciate the effort and dedication to keep us protected with your prayers.
Greetings and we hope to see you soon!
